I agree with you Aditya I have made that speech many times, although I thought that was a phrase that City fans used to make fun of us about being relegated. They chanted "Man U who the **** are Man U" and thats how the name caught on. I for one never use it I always refer to my team as United or Man United or sometimes Manchester United. In Egypt we simply refer to them as "Manchester" which is kind of cool pisses City fans off lol as it implies that United are the only team from Manchester worth a mention. But you are right, I too encourage every one to refrain from using the horrible abbreviation M** *.
